Parental Participation & Involvement
At Glen FC we recognise parents as the primary educators of their children. We are continually developing a range of creative and interesting ways to address the needs of children and families. Underpinning all we do are the principles of a nurturing, supportive and family friendly approach which will enhance family wellbeing and support the whole family to reach their full potential. Below are details of some of the ways you can get involved and some of the opportunities you can participate in.
Stay & Play
Nursery isn’t just for your child. You can stay and play too and learn more about what your child gets up to during the session. You can also learn some new ways to play from working alongside your key worker with your child. This can be particularly useful in your child’s earliest months when it may seem that all they can do is eat, sleep and cry! Your toddler / older child will love showing you around and getting you involved in their play.
We can offer play visits at home to families who may be more comfortable in their own environment. The visit will be informal and fun and taken at the child’s pace. There is no need for any preparation or expense as a key worker will bring a bag of resources to use. This visit is likely to involve a story, a short activity and some songs and rhymes. We would hope that the play visits develop your child’s interests and give you some ideas for things you can do together at home. We also hope the visits help you and your child build relationships with staff and make you feel more confident about playing with your child and accessing community resources.
